Mike and Mindy Commission

Run Red Run Needle Felted Mike and MindyJon Esparza, creator of the webcomics Mike and Mindy, Bubble Fox, and Peppertown, commissioned me to sculpt his characters, Mike and Mindy, in glorious 3-D form.  These two have a lot of fun together and get into some crazy situations. You can laugh along with Mike and Mindy and all of Jon’s comics over at jonscrazystuff.blogspot.com, read a few of his comics below, and see more shots of these wacky kids in the gallery.

These 8-inch Mike and Mindy figures represent the third time I’ve been commissioned to recreate comic characters (Bigfoot and Scout from Untold Tales of Bigfoot and Lope from The Graveyard Gang being the other two).

Poetic Justice: With my needle, I felted an ALBATROSS!

Run Red Run Needle Felted Albatross Art tip: When the inspiration behind a commission is a grim poem about sailors dying at sea, you should avoid googly eyes on your fiber sculpture.

That said, I just finished another commission! This time the subject was a very serious albatross. Nothing too whimsical in this design since the recipient is a big fan of the Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner — if you know the poem, you’ll understand why we went with a more somber, less cartoony bird.

The client who commissioned me gave me a photo of a specific albatross for reference. i pulled a few more images from the web to get a sense of the bird and went for a realistic interpretation of the subject. I was lucky enough to be there when the gift was given and it was a hit. Whew! I had some fun with Photoshop, pretending the seabird was out for a swim, and there are a few more studio shots in the gallery.
